The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) remains at the site of a water recycling centre in Avonmouth following yesterday’s fatal explosion.
HSE is fully supporting the investigation into the incident, for which Avon and Somerset Police have primacy.
Giles Hyder, HSE’s head of operations in the South West said:
“We send our deepest condolences to the families of those who tragically died. It is important a joint investigation with the police is carried out.
“We will provide specialist support to what is likely to be a complex investigation under the command of the police.”
